I think it’s safe to say that over the course of 50 years of uninterrupted publishing the personal history of some characters are going to get pretty convoluted. Especially with entire reboots of universes. For instance, The Huntress from DC comics was originally the daughter of Batman and Catwoman from another dimension. Then Crisis on Infinite Earths happened, and all of a sudden she’s the daughter of some gangsters. So… Continue reading
Me oh my, I have not been the best UberFriend this week. I missed posting in my usual Tuesday slot. I beg your forgiveness. But, in my defense, this is the first time I’ve missed my self-imposed deadline in the entire year and a half that I’ve been doing this! And, it’s been a hell of a week. Allow me to elaborate…
Monday: It has been nine long years… Continue reading
Clearly, the price of stuff has been going up. Continue reading
The new Iron Man movie is fun, cheeky, and has a lot of twists. The writers had a lot of fun with the characters as they all turn their character archetypes upside down. Continue reading
I have finally reached a point in this column where I genuinely can’t recall if I’ve addressed some topics before or not.

I just spent the last hour and a half filing my taxes at the last minute, so I’m a little brain dead. Therefore, this one’s going to be pretty simple. I’m going to spend the whole piece talking about one current comic book series.
I was skimming through the letters page of one of my comics the other day, and something caught my eye. One of the letter writers… Continue reading
Maybe I’m crazy, but I tend to prefer subtitling done by fans rather than the official professional subtitles (or dubs). With fansubs, there are often additional subtitles (translation notes) that explain any odd aspects of Japanese culture. For example, the Macross fansub I watched points out that Gepelnitch is a dude. Official subs/dubs on the other hand try to gloss over any cultural oddities and try to Americanize everything. I… Continue reading

What is this Write Night, you ask? Every Monday me and a bunch of others… Continue reading
